    Sid Dinerstein, chairman of the Palm Beach County Republican Party, said he wishes West hadn’t used a Nazi reference, but he said the congressman’s broader point about Democrats, the media and propaganda is correct

    Sad, but so very true.

    The problem is that Joseph Goebbels was a lot more then just a government minister doing his job. Perhaps this guy should do some research before making historical references. Anyone can be an effective propagandist if they also have the power to have anyone who sees through the lies shot on the spot.

    And the Nazis did a lot more than just murder Jews. This is always done the other way around and the liberal media doesn't blink. How many times was Bush compared to Hitler?

    Truth be told, the Democrat party and the media at large is probably more effective than Goebbels himself.

    At least the Bush compared to Hitler has a bit more relation as Republicans and the Nazi's are both right-wing operations. It's funny how the Republicans link Nazism = Democrat and Commies = Democrat but can't seem to figure out Nazism is right-wing and not Communistic. Nothing like divisive rhetoric to drive away opposition so one can declare themselves victor. Clearly West does not believe in working together to build a better America.

    The ironic thing about this is, if he's right, then he's given the same propaganda machine he was attempting to quantify a gift on a silver plate.

    a bad workman blames his tools... it isnt that there is some effective conspiracy to silence the republican message per se, lawd knows there are plenty of right wing scrawkin heads out there, but rather that the message is being heard loud and clear and is summarily rejected by the bulk of humanity....
